Tried to debate and got censored
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pR_LuGUQ...e=youtu.be

It is all explained in that video. I also gave a link to the original discussion (or at least the fragments of that discussion). Any thoughts?

What made you think that Facebook is a suitable platform for debate? [Image: facepalm.gif]

Was simply replying to an article the dad of a friend posted. It continued going for a bit. I didn't pre-think the idea of getting into a debate at all.

RE: Tried to debate and got censored
Facebook is shitty for debates. The fact that the owner of the post can delete your comments is only one reason.
  • The formatting options are terrible.
  • You can typically only read the top few lines of what someone says unless you click "see more". Most people will see that, say "TL;DR" and move on.
  • If you add in more than one link to a post, only one gets previewed, so the others may be missed.
  • If you're on a public page, all you can do is drive-bys. By the time you post something to reply to a poster, there will have been a hundred other responses. It's impossible to follow a "discussion" in a public page that's even remotely popular.
  • Most people are there to fuck around and not engage in a serious discussion. The format is literally designed for making your "points" with shitty image macros.

Facebook?

I dont use it.

And if I would, it would be to harass people.

RE: Tried to debate and got censored
Agreed that Facebook is inadequate, to say the least, for debate. I wasn't having a go at a serious, formal debate. Perhaps debate was a poor choice of words. It was a place to say my opinion, and I said it. I just felt that behavior such as deleting comments to deter discussion should be called out when it happens.

Taq - seriously man. Stop playing with your food and just eat it already.
